Muriel Siebert, Poet

Years ago, when Muriel Siebert-the First Lady of Wall Street–was a young stockbroker, a businessman took her out to lunch–and treated her to a flood of anti-Semitic remarks.

She held her tongue.

What would you have done?

This is what Siebert did: When she returned to her office, she dropped that fellow a note:

Roses are reddish
Violets are blueish
You may not know it
But I’m Jewish.
